“My goal is to treat every patient the way I would want to be treated; with courtesy, dignity and respect. I carefully listen to their skin-care concerns and offer a variety of options for them. I also recommend a treatment plan that I believe will give them the best results. Additionally, all of my nursing staff are active members of the prestigious 'Dermatology Nurses Association'. As a board certified dermatologist, I feel that this level of distinction provides our patients with the gold standard of quality care that they expect and deserve. Please take a moment to enter and view our website. Allow us to solve your skin care problems. After all, at Crutchfield Dermatology, our goal is to make you look good and feel great with beautiful skin". -- Charles E. Crutchfield, III, MD

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

Technology for the treatment of facial redness and sun freckles and (liver spots) on face, chest, shoulders and hands

IPL technology improves the appearance of photoaged skin, removes age spots (sun-induced freckles), most benign brown pigments, and redness caused by broken capillaries through a process called photorejuvenation for face and body. The process is ideal for patients with active lifestyles because the procedure requires no downtime and has a low risk of side effects. Crutchfield Dermatology is pleased to offer a series of IPL treatments to address these concerns.

Restylane, Juvederm and Captique
At Crutchfield Dermatology we are pleased to announce that we offer the full line of rejuvenation products including Restylane, Juvederm and Captique. These gentle filling agents compliment BOTOX® Cosmetic in the elimination of unwanted facial lines and wrinkles. It can be used to treat frown lines, smile lines (crow's feet) around the eyes, lines on the cheeks along the nose, and lines around the mouth and in the lips for a more full appearance. The product is made of a natural, sugar-based, water absorbing gel (hyaluronic acid), found commonly in both plants and animals. Millions of patients, worldwide, have safely and successfully used these products over the past 8 years. All three products are F.D.A. approved.
